You see some odd sights at times going along the River Thames – but seeing Anbuis standing proud as he is taken up to the center of London has to be one of the stranger ones.

As an aside, the Victorians (incorrectly) thought the origin of the name for the River Thames was River Isis – another Egyptian reference.

He was seen heading the other way an hour later – so I guess it could have been a cryptic advert for the forthcoming Tutankhamen exhibition at the O2/Dome?

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
